Pete Davidson to Star As Fictional Version of Himself in New Comedy Series From Lorne Michaels

"Saturday Night Live" alum Pete Davidson will star in a new comedy series inspired by his life, which hails from SNL creator Lorne Michaels, and has been tentatively titled "Bupkis". Davidson will also co-write alongside long-time friend and collaborator Dave Sirus ("The King of Staten Island"), and Judah Miller ("Crashing").

The show, which has been compared to Larry David's "Curb Your Enthusiasm", is described as a raw, unflinching, fictionalized version of Pete Davidson's real life that will include a mixture of grounded storytelling with absurd elements depicting an unfiltered view through Pete's eyes.

The project is currently being shoppped to streamers and talks are underway with A-list talent for the ensemble cast around Davidson.

Davidson is currently taking a break from SNL while he's filming the horror thriller "The Home" from "The Purge" creator James DeMonaco. He will next be seen in the slasher film "Bodies Bodies Bodies", "Good Morning With A U" with Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox, and "Meet Cute" opposite Kaley Cuoco.
